Off Dawn's needles

We've been featuring works in progress on our Facebook page this week.  All of us at the shop have shared photos and details of what is on our needles.  Dawn submitted photos of a little hat she's been working on, and managed to finish it so quickly we couldn't keep up with her progress.wipOn Tuesday, she had just added her third pop color.  And by Friday...akiraHer hat was complete!  This is the Alkira hat designed by ambah.  And boy does this little beanie feel amazing!  Dawn used 3 skeins Zealana Perfoma Rimu DK on size US 3 & 4 needles for the s/m size.  And she'll be able to make another hat with her leftover yarn by alternating her colors. Zealana rimuAnd look what colors there are to choose from!She wanted to share with those of you interested in casting on for this project that the pattern calls for a finer sport weight yarn, so she modified the pattern by decreasing her stitch count by 13 stitches for a smaller size.We hope that by sharing our projects and progress we've been able to inspire your knitting this week.  Stop on by the shop when you can, and show us what you are working on.  You may be working on something that we'd like to cast on for next!
